The teenager raves about his strike on his first senior outing for the Purple and White

Anderlecht youngster Francis Amuzu is excited about his maiden goal for the club.

On his first senior appearance for the Purple and White, the 18-year-old emerged hero of the day as his strike ensured a 1-0 triumph over AS Eupen in the Belgian topflight on Friday. 

"Absolutely, I am very grateful that the coach gave me a chance," Amuzu said said, as reported by Sporza.

"Normally I would not play, but I was allowed to join in. I am really grateful to the coach and the supporters.

"I'm really happy - I got a great pass from [Adrien] Trebel and suddenly I was in front of the goal. It then flashed through my mind that I could score on my debut.

"I gave everything, so physically I was a bit tired."
